For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go trekking across the globe to bring us music from the peoples of some of the world's remotest regions, visiting many of the places featured in the TV series.
This week the focus is on the music of ocean communities.
Galicia: Galicians consider themselves Celts, linked by sea travel with peoples in Northern France, Ireland and Scotland.
Lucy Duran meets leading piper Xosé Manuel Budiño, and is invited to the village of Cebreiro for a party celebrating Celtic culture.
Papua New Guinea: Andy Kershaw goes shark fishing with Blais, the singing shark caller from Tembin Village, to the accompaniment of the villagers, who encourage them with a unique repertory of shark-calling songs.
Brazil: Lucy Duran visits the coastal city of Salvador da Bahia, the ancient capital of Camdomblé.
This is the religion that uses old African customs and languages - it's practised on the seashore looking across to Africa, and the sea and its shells are crucial to the liturgy, and its music too.
Solomon Islands: Andy Kershaw gets the gospel: the Deep Sea Canoe Movement is dedicated to keeping up continuous worship 24 hours a day on the paradise island of Malaita.
Producers: Roger Short and James Parkin.
The series accompanies and visits the same destinations as BBC One's Human Planet, a new landmark anthropological series celebrating man's remarkable ingenuity in using and adapting to his environment.
Music Planet will offer the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the cultures witnessed on BBC One's Human Planet by experiencing their music, sounds and songs.
From the jungles of Papua New Guinea to the deserts of Mali; from the heart of the Amazon to the islands of the Pacific; from the dark winter days of Greenland to the long summer nights of Arctic Norway; from the dried-up rivers of Kenya to the grasslands of Mongolia, Music Planet gives the listeners unique access to sounds from around the world, captured in high-quality sound by the BBC's top music recording engineers.
And throughout, Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran bring their own special insights to what we're hearing.
Key moments for the series include a traditional head-hunting song from New Ireland in Papua New Guinea; the mighty voice of Greenland's greatest singer; the story of the Mangue-bit movement in Recife, Brazil; yodelling in the Swiss Alps; rapping in Dubai; an Inuit throat-singing duet, recorded by the frozen Arctic Sea; and the secret songs of Burma recorded in the jungle on the border with Thailand.
